Award-winning singer/songwriter Declan O’Rourke is set to perform at the Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre in Limavady next month, where he will present songs from his new album Gold Bars.
Having already achieved critical acclaim for his songwriting, singing and performance, the Dublin artist regularly plays to mesmerized audiences throughout Ireland and internationally.
Meteor nominated, his debut single Galileo (Someone Like You) has been recorded by many artists including Josh Groban, Chris Rea and Paul Weller, who described it as the greatest song written in the last 30 years.
Such was the critical and commercial success of his first studio album Since Kyabram in 2004, that it opened the doors for him internationally, earning him plaudits from the likes of Snow Patrol, Kate Rusby and DJs Jonathan Ross and Edith Bowman, each of whom were rapturous in their praise of Declan’s deep-honey voice and astute song writing abilities.
His follow-up album in 2007, Big Bad Beautiful World, easily consolidated his appeal in Ireland and also with his growing list of well-connected champions. Support slots followed in the UK and Europe to the likes of Paulo Nutini, Snow Patrol, Teddy Thompson, The Cardigans, Badly Drawn Boy, Divine Comedy and Paul Brady.
Expect a stunning evening with this celebrated singer songwriter as he showcases songs from his new album as well as the gems that have made his name so far.
Please note, this is a BYO and cabaret style event with limited seating.
